Ormond Beach REALTOR | Daytona Beach REALTOR VS. Daytona Real Estate Agent

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Watson Realty Corp. REALTORS

There is a big difference between a real estate agent and a REALTOR.  A real estate agent is licensed through the State and can practice real estate as long as they are affiliated with a real estate company.

Real estate agents who are not a REALTOR will not have access to the multiple listing service, will not have keys to open locks to show your home. 

In most cases it will limit showings and exposure to get your home sold.  Not only am I a real estate agent I have chosen to be a REALTOR.

So what is a REALTOR?  A REALTOR is a real estate agent who has taken additional training and steps to become a REALTOR.  I have  joined one of the largest organizations in the country, the organization would be the National Assocation of REALTORS

Although not a requirement if you are practicing real estate and would rather be a REALTOR than just a real estate agent, we know we must become a member of NAR.  There are several advantages with working with a REALTOR.

  • REALTORS must join their local board.  I am a proud member of the Daytona Beach Area Association.
  • REALTORS must join their state board.  I am a proud member of the Florida Assocation of REALTORS
  • Must become a member of the National Association of REALTORS
  • Have access to all mls listings available on the market
  • Access to use the mls to market listings to fellow REALTORS
  • We offer protection by using documents that are approved by the Florida Association of REALTORS and these documents are approved by attornies too.
  • We take additional training 

  • We take an oath to abide by The REALTOR CODE of Ethics.

As you can see there are many advantages of working with a REALTOR vs. just a real estate agent. More training, more accountability and access to all mls listings on the market today.

While I am a real estate agent I am also proud to call myself a REALTOR. 

If you have a home that you are interested in selling or in themarket to buy make sure the real estate agent that you use is a REALTOR too!  If you have additional question or concerns or would like to work with a REALTOR, contact us

We would love the opportunity to help you.

Not only are REALTORS held to a higher standard of service for their clients, they have agreed to a higher standard for how they treat the public and they attend more training than their counterparts who choose not to subscribe to the ethics.  It was the National Association of Realtors who was instrumental in getting tax credits passed for home buyers.  Non Realtor agents don't have a lobby group advocating for homeowners rights.
